Mrs. John Iverson
The death of Mrs. John Iverson Ludve, of which brief mention was made in last week’s Times, occurred at the home of her son, Iver, at Fargo, N.D., on Monday April 22nd. Brief services were held at that place after which the body was brought to this city on Wednesday evening of last week and taken out to the Lewis Iverson home northeast of Graettinger. The funeral was held at that home Friday and burial made in the High lake cemetery. Reverend Sande of this city delivered the funeral sermon. The pall bearers wee L. Christopher, Nels Iverson, B.K. Rokne, P.N. Peterson, J.P. Conway and P.S. McCarty.

Mrs. Iverson had been sick for several months and although death had been expected for some time it is none the less acutely felt by her loved ones and friends.

Jule Johnson Moen was born at Spring Prairie, Wis., August 21, 1847, being a few months over sixty-four years of age at the time of her death. She resided there with her parents until in July 1865 she was united in marriage to John Iverson Ludve. A year after their marriage they came to Emmet county and settled on the old Iverson homestead northeast of town. Here they lived until in 1902 they moved to North Dakota and settled on a farm near Havanna. Mr. Iverson died nine years ago in may but she lived on the farm with her son, John until last fall when her health became so poor that she went to Fargo to live with her son, Iver. To Mr. and Mrs. Iverson were born twelve children, five of whom are dead. The surviving sons and daughter are Iver and Carl of Fargo, Martin and Andrew of Glendo, John and Anger on Havanna, N.D. and Lewis of this place. Deceased also has three sisters living, Mrs. Chris Anderson of Armstrong, and Mesdames B.K. Rokne and P.N. Peterson of High Lake township.

Mrs. Iverson was one of the women who experienced the hardships of early pioneer life in this country. She bore all with a cheerfulness which greatly lightened the burdens of her family. She had been a member of the Lutheran church since childhood. There was no one who was more willing to aid the suffering, cheer and comfort the desponding and lend a helping hand to all than she. Her death is regretted by her immediate family and those who knew who her best. Her life was one of close companionship with her loved ones.

The Times extends sympathy to those who mourn her. (Graettinger Times, Graettinger, IA, May 2, 1912)
